The Portrait Masters Conference

Each year The Portrait Master Conference hosts three full days of intense learning, networking, shooting events, and fun. Each day new speakers take the stage to do live-demos and presentations. In between presentations, attendees can practice what they’ve learned by visiting one of our 35 shooting bays. In addition, more than 50 manufacturers will be on hand to display and demonstrate the latest in imaging technology and software in the conference Shoot and Shop Room. After a full day of learning, attendees kick back and relax each evening at the after-hours events.
